dont get to mad.

ok so I don't have a ford focus. I own a 1990 ford festiva which is getting a new power plant, thee 2.0 duratec. the plan is to build the fastest ford festiva in the world. the record to beat is 10.9 I think. mostly I am here to get info about the engine, transmission, and drivetrain. if allowed I would love to go FocusFest and compete since im using a focus engine and all. haha thanks jake.

thanks for the support I will definably keep everyone posted. as of right now I just emptied my bank to get it to pass inspection... I don't have a job due to being out of a car since October. but once I get a chance im buying a salvage 03-07 focus off of copart.com. pulling engine, ecm, harness and trans- cable shifter assembly (I have a rod shifter, which I hate with the new short shifter). my car is surely not a looker but she'll go after the swap. right now I am at 60hp from factory which has probably declined. I am going to keep the engine stock other than maybe locking the dif, getting rid of emissions, power steering, a/c, and any other unnecessary components. why stock? because my car weighs in at a little less than 1800 factory, and I think with more horse power it will just spin lol. thanks Jake

Welcome bud...interesting project, do you think the 2.0 duratec will get you there though?
Unless you have some forced induction plans, or try and put the 2.0 ecoboost (st) engine
In there....ive seen footage of fiestas killing some monster built up cars, very cool....10 seconds sounds about right from my recollections...good luck
